Never heard of a bwthree. I've heard of a cgthree, but that's a color
framebuffer. Maybe you've got a prototype? I've never seen one of the
monochrome units, so I can't say.

There aren't too many in the wild working and complete with their
keyboard/mouse. Ebay's pricing is absurd for the broken ones, given that
the keyboard is generally the unobtanium part.
